"We feel so fortunate to have crossed paths with Dan Wright. His insight and candid feedback have been tremendously helpful to us in the process of writing our book. With no previous experience in publishing, we didn't even know where to begin. Dan has been incredibly patient, supportive, knowledgeable, and honest with us."

"Dan, you have done a magnificent job as my publisher. I could have made major mistakes if you had not been right there with me on making key decisions. I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in publishing a book to get Fitting Words involved. You were priceless to me. Also, I enjoy being your friend, and I felt that way from the very start. Bill"

I have a large family of authors I have grown to love and respect. This is equally true of some who help promote and produce the books they write. Such a professional is Dan Wright of Fitting Words—whose impeccable standards make it a pleasure to introduce him to aspiring authors. I have enjoyed the process of working with Dan and delight in the fact that he is so personally involved with my “family”—right down to consulting with them at each stage of development and production. He respects the fact that a book is the product of one’s heart and life and offers the ultimate in service for today’s changing times.

It has been a pleasure and privilege to work with Dan Wright of Fitting Words on three book projects. He is the very definition of professionalism and his experience and wisdom regarding every aspect of book publishing resulted in the success of all three projects. As a novice author, I had little appreciation for the various components of publishing. Dan was enormously helpful every step of the way, guiding and encouraging me to understand the process and the steps necessary to achieve the goals I was seeking. I owe Dan a profound debt of gratitude and recommend him to anyone searching for assistance in turning your idea for a book into reality.

I’ve worked with Dan for over a decade now. He’s the one I call. He’s the one I trust. He’s the one I know will get me from idea to best solution. Dan takes time to help me understand the industry, not just give advice. He takes extra time, helping me develop ideas and explore options. I always leave our conversations with clarity and answers to questions I didn’t know I needed to ask. Dan over-delivers. And as professional as he is, I also know he’s a friend who wants my, my book’s, and my reader’s highest good.
